All Good Things Must Come To An End

The life cycle of a star is long; our sun was born approximately 5 billion years ago. Compare that to the lifespan of the Lake Erie midge, more commonly called the Canadian Soldier, which lives only 24 hours. In between those two extremes is this blog, which has been in existence for almost two years. Sadly, its time is now over.

3 Reasons We Must Stuff Stuff On Our List

1. Jared
2. Nance
3. You

Ok. In brief:

Jared is a twentysomething guy with twentysomething-guy pursuits and a twentysomething guy commitment level. You probably noticed that I outposted him at least three to one. Additionally, he has moved out to an apartment with a buddy, and they do not yet have Internet capability beyond their Blackberrys. This all adds up to A Lot Going On And Some Minor Inconvenience, so he is pretty much not going to be posting anytime soon, not that he was doing so all that often, which I covered already. SO! Moving on.

I have two other Main Blogs, so this one admittedly was not my Main Priority. I started it with Jared so that we could Do Something Together. It soon became something of a drag for me when it looked like it was yet another Personal Blog. I can't helm three blogs. This is the easy one to let go. Just like in a work situation, last hired is the first fired.

Finally, this blog has the least number of subscribers and almost no commenters. It's pretty obvious that it won't be missed, and so I feel that I'm bowing to the will of the public anyway. Please know, the few of you that do read occasionally, that I will incorporate a few Lists on my anchor blog over at the Dept. of Nance. The clickable link is in the sidebar here. I won't be taking down this blog; rather, I'll be using it to experiment with some of Blogger's new features recently introduced. That way, I can decide whether or not to implement them worry-free at my other sites.

Thanks for the laughs and for the discussions we had here. It was fun while it lasted.

I really loved this blog, but I understand why you're discontinuing it. It was fun!

I will miss it! But as I'm too lazy to comment often, I understand that you're too busy to really keep it updated.

I will miss Stuff (and Jared!), but glad you will occasionally still have lists over at The Dept. You do well with lists, Nance, and even though I rarely get to comment (or sometimes am too brain dead to meet the challenge of coming up with my own lists in response), I have enjoyed the lists on Stuff. :-) Thanks for the gift of Stuff while it lasted!



Nance said...

Shirley--Thanks for the kind words. You're always welcome to comment on any of my blogs.

Mikey--I hope I'll still see your lazy butt over at the Dept. LOL.

Tiana--Glad you liked Stuff. Hopefully, you'll find things to like at the Dept. as well.

I have to admit that I was neglectful in my reading and commenting here. I did enjoy the lists while they lasted and it will be nice to see them at The Dept. Thanks for the fun while it lasted. Best of luck in your new place Jared! Now back to your other blogs! : )

Nance said...

Anali--Don't be silly! Blogs should never be an Obligation. You should read to be informed or to be entertained. If it wasn't doing either one, which this obv. wasn't for many people, then it was time to let it go. No big deal. I'm always happy to see you at the Dept. or at The Tie Report. And I enjoy reading you at the Amendment, whether I jump in with something to say or just nod silently from the gallery.

Sigh. Just found the good-bye while cleaning up my reading list.
Me, I can't keep two blogs up to date - don't know how you manage. But this was a lot of fun and I hope to see some of it at the Dep't.
